‘Where We’re Going, We Don’t Need Roads’: This Supercut Takes A Look Back At The Future In Film

With the recent Back to the Future day, endless think-pieces were written about how the future was depicted in Back to the Future II compared to how it actually turned out, with Neil deGrasse Tyson giving a complete breakdown. (Long story short: We still don’t have fricking hoverboards.) Such may have been the inspiration for the latest from video editing extraordinaire Robert Jones, who has put together this complete supercut of how the future has been depicted over the course of film — set to Huey Lewis’ “Back in Time,” naturally — featuring everything from Idiocracy to 2001: A Space Odyssey.

So sit back, relax, and get ready to behold… *waves arm* THE FUTURE.
